SECTA, in partnership with the previous Caradon District Council, introduced the SECTA Green Acorn Award Scheme, a voluntary ‘green tourism’ award scheme specifically for members. The project gives recognition to those who want to do more to reduce the impact of their businesses and that of their guests, on the environment.
The scheme has the following aims:
To encourage members to think about the effect their business may have on their surroundings;
To suggest a number of ideas that, although small in themselves, could make a significant impact;
To recognise and give publicity to those who adopt business practices that will help protect our local environment;
To provide information on how to go about ‘going green’ and where to get help, if required.
